Just returned from an amazing week at Casa Cortona. It’s such a stunning location and they really have thought of everything - from comfy beds to a fully kitted out kitchen which was great for bbqs in the evening, enjoying the amazing views. It’s a really quiet setting up in the hills - but only 20 mins down to Cortona for dinner, shops etc. Highly recommend for anyone looking to experience Italian life for a bit.

Wow! What an amazing experience. Every need was catered for by the lovely and helpful owners. The facilities are excellent and luxurious whilst still keeping the rustic Italian charm. 15 minutes drive to historical Cortona and its many restaurants, bars and shops. Casa Cortona is a retreat, a place to breathe, take in the beautiful landscape and to feel completely relaxed. I will definitely be coming back.

We have stayed twice at Casa Cortona and will be booking again. We don’t usually go back to the same places but this is a hidden gem. It’s the perfect place to visit Tuscany’s best cities and villages. It’s not like other holiday lets either, it’s classically Italian but modern. No expense has been spared on the little touches. Yes, it has lots of rustic charm but also loads of quality items that you wouldn’t expect. We loved it. The owners were amazing, their recommendations were spot on. If you want Tuscany, with amazing views and modern rustic charm, this place is everything and more.

This place is absolutely stunning, everything you imagine Tuscany to be. Surrounded by hills but a short drive to the gorgeous Cortona. The property itself is beautiful, classic Tuscan farmhouse but with all the details thoughtfully considered for a very comfortable stay. The kids loved the pool, facilities were excellent and the BBQ area perfect for watching the sun go down. Would love to come back one day!
